During its flight, the Galileo spacecraft returned images of the Moon. The Galileo spacecraft took these images on December 7, 1992 on its way to explore the Jupiter system in 1995-97. The distinct bright ray crater at the bottom of the image is the Tycho impact basin. The dark areas are lava rock filled impact basins: Oceanus Procellarum (on the left), Mare Imbrium (center left), Mare Serenitatis and Mare Tranquillitatis (center), and Mare Crisium (near the right edge).

A lively tradition of provincial Mexican religious art has existed from the Spanish colonial period through the present day. The subject of this devotional image, rendered in the popular medium of painted tin, also appeared in more formal colonial Mexican altar paintings. Perched on the tips of the fingers of a detached hand, Christ appears flanked by his parents and his grandparents, Anna and Joachim. The symbol of the hand, deriving from the European cult of Saint Anne, also bears the wound...

On special assignment for a German newspaper, Rudolph Cronau came to America to document its cities, frontier lands, and Native American populations for curious European audiences. His training at the Düsseldorf art academy, which emphasized careful draftsmanship, is clearly evident in this romanticized vista of Brooklyn’s famous Green-Wood Cemetery at sunset. Conceived in tones of black and white for reproduction, this watercolor features the Gothic-style entrance arch at center, the...

Following the deprivations in the wilderness, Jesus receives the care of angels who restore his strength. Rejecting art-historical traditions in which Jesus takes material sustenance in the form of dates and pomegranates, Tissot insists on otherworldly agency. Here blue-hued, flame-haired angels extend their fingers to touch the prostrate form of the spent Jesus, who appears to assume a cross-like position.

The town of Pomata, situated above Lake Titicaca in the highlands of Peru, was once a popular Christian pilgrimage shrine. In this painting, Our Lady of Pomata is depicted as a statue--a carved figure crowned and dressed in lavish garments and adorned with precious materials--that stood on the side altar of the parish church. This type of iconic image, found throughout Latin America, is known as a statue painting. A rosary encircles the hands of the Virgin, who holds a tiny doll-like Child...

From about 1820, the self-taught artist and Quaker preacher Edward Hicks painted approximately sixty versions of The Peaceable Kingdom in an effort to reconcile his artistic vocation with his ardent faith. The subject is based on verses from the Old Testament Book of Isaiah that describe an Edenic world in which predatory animals (a leopard, lion, and bear) coexist in harmony with meeker creatures (a lamb, kid, and calf) and children. In the background, the earthly realization of this prophecy...

Scenes of the Holy Family often blend delightful domestic details with the presence of the divine. Here, an Andean artist divides the canvas into two arenas of concentrated activity: at right, the faithful son, Jesus, helps Joseph saw a board; at left, Mary, ever industrious, attends to her needlework. Mary's white embroidery and the potted lilies behind her represent her purity. Throughout the scene, angels assist under the watchful eye of the Archangel Michael at left. In the upper right...

In this charming Nativity scene celebrating the Holy Family in humble surroundings, the Child is the focus of attention as Mary and Joseph kneel beside him in worship. A shepherd bearing a sheep enters at the left, and an ox and ass are in attendance at the right. Radiant clouds beam down, while a sturdy little booted angel hovers above bearing a scroll, whose Latin inscription proclaims "Glory to God in the highest." A few Peruvian flowers bloom at the foot of the manger. Both...

This work by the little-known painter Paul Lacroix, dating from the last year of his active career, demonstrates the strong influence of the still life expert Severin Roesen, who had worked in New York from about 1848 to 1857. After favoring simply arranged fruits on rough stone ledges earlier in his career, Lacroix began to paint more elaborate displays of fruit on veined-marble tables in the 1860s. This painting may have been owned by the nineteenth-century Brooklyn resident Garret Bergen...

By the time this work was painted, painful memories of the Civil War had receded enough in the national consciousness that George Henry Story, who specialized in genre scenes of children, could make battle the focus of child’s play. “Fighting” under the banner of the American flag, the three smiling youngsters embody the patriotic pride and optimism surrounding America’s celebration of its 1876 Centennial. Story originally painted an intact sword hanging from the middle child’s belt,...

For Diaz, like so many of the Barbizon painters, the Fontainebleau Forest outside of Paris proved a constant source of inspiration. In these two paintings, the painter adopts a similar compositional strategy, using large trees to frame a body of water or a clearing at the center of his scene. Diaz plays with the patterns of light and shadow created by sunlight filtering through the leaves onto the forest floor. He uses thick, black strokes to define the contours of the trees, as is particularly...

Informal scenes of the Holy Family were popular in Spain and its colonies. Saint Joseph, portrayed as a handsome young man, here clasps the Child's hand in a gesture of affection and fatherly guidance. Joseph's other hand grasps a triple-branched lily on a single stem--his attribute and here a symbol of the Trinity. The Christ Child holds a basket of carpenter's tools. His red sandals are made in an Incan style. Originally, a full border of roses and native lilies would have further flattened...

Francis Guy’s prospect of Baltimore meticulously records the city’s distinctive topographical features, from the cliffs of Jones Falls Valley and “Howard’s Elm” in the foreground to the dense cluster of buildings that stretches to the harbor front. The contrast between built structures and natural forms speaks to a landscape transformed by urban development. Many of the buildings are readily identifiable, including the octagonal Pantheon (left foreground), where Guy planned to exhibit...

Homer drew five illustrations for the serialized novel, Beechdale, by Mary Virginia Hawes Terhune (writing under the pseudonym Marion Harland). The novel is a romantic tale centering on duty, false love, and moral conflict. The young heroine, Jessie, is depicted recovering from a sprained foot and dreamily listening to an address given by Roy Fordham beyond the open window. She is interrupted from her happy reveries about Roy (to whom she is secretly engaged) by the arrival of his cousin, Orrin...
